3 Gift Ideas For Writers

Christmas is a week away. It is inching closer with every passing day. Even if you don’t celebrate Christmas, giving a writer a gift is the perfect way to get them to write you into their next novel. Or not.

Here are three gifts to get a writer this holiday season…or any day you feel somewhat rich.

  1. The next book (or twenty) on their reading list. Even better, an autographed copy.
  2. An up-to-date reference book on anything from the causes of El Nino to Siberian tigers. OK, that’s a lie. Think more along the lines of a grammar guide or style book. A writer can never have too many of those.
  3. A caboodle loaded with writing goodies. Anybody who believes caboodles are only for dancers is clearly not a writer.

What are you getting the writer(s) in your life?
